The power of thinking
Sherlock Holmes has captured readers' imaginations for a century. Now these stories provide Lao readers with a chance to improve their English, while enjoying a good read. This is the third in our Sherlock Holmes series.
Each book has a controlled vocabulary, with simplified English ("the blue carbuncle" becomes "the blue diamond") but we have not significantly shortened the stories themselves. Conan Doyle knew more about how to pace a story than we do.
